James R. Schlesinger (1929-2014) has served as U.S. Secretary of Defense (1973-1975) under Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford and as the nation's first Secretary of Energy (1977-1979) under President Jimmy Carter. A former teacher of economics, Schlesinger was appointed by Nixon to the Atomic Energy Commission in 1971, and he was named Director of the Central Intelligence Agency in 1973. Leaving after only six months to become Secretary of Defense, Schlesinger was later fired by Ford for insubordination for refusing to carry out orders. A prolific writer and fiery speaker, Schlesinger returned to the national spotlight in 2002, when President George W. Bush named him to the Homeland Security Advisory Council. Also a consultant to the Department of Defense, Schlesinger serves on the boards of a number of companies.
